To the seaside in a Riley time machine!

Wasn’t yesterday the most beautiful day ever? I went to the seaside with my friend David in his gorgeous Riley called Rebecca, she was quite the head turner and it was SO much fun whizzing through the country lanes with the roof down, not to mention the adventures we had on the way home!

We had a browse in the vintage quarter and saw this ridiculously large chair!

We went for coffee and cake at the Soulshine Cafe who serve the best chocolate beetroot slice ever! A visit is a must when in Bridport – more details here.

I fell in love with these red tap shoes that reminded me of the pair I had when I were a lass – how could a girl resist?! ….

After chatting with Chris who restores and converts 2CVs, we had a spot of lunch at the Red Brick Cafe where the food is delicious and the location perfect for a post vintage window shopping rest – well it is rather taxing ole fruits!

The seaside was beckoning so off we went to Burton Bradstock for a paddle and sleep (in David’s case)

Of course you can’t go to Burton Bradstock without sampling the fish and chips from Hive Cafe which I heartily recommend as a summer evening food destination. It really is an unbeatable location and the food is delicious. Details of which can be found here

This is turning out to be a day of eating with the pleasant interruption of driving and paddling – my favourite kind of day!

We drove  a very scenic route home as the moon was rising in the sky, it really was rather magical winding up into the hills and passed an iron age fort (if a little unnerving when David told me we were going down a road notorious for engine failure!)

Poor Audrey wasn’t very happy with me for leaving her in the garage today but not as unhappy as this poor Moggy we saw in the middle of nowhere surrounded by nettles – in desperate need of being rescued – help someone!

Didn’t we have a loverly time … thank you David and Rebecca for chauffeuring me around the countryside and sharing such a perfect day with me. Twas a wonderful day to be alive!
